Hackney is home to London's most hipster and creative areas. It's also home to London Fields and on the borders of Victoria Park, one of London's oldest, more beautiful parks.

Get one heck of a brekkie at Hash E8

For a breakfast or brunch like you've never seen it. Expect an exciting menu boasting banana, peanut butter & chocolate stuffed French toast & Posh Pig Muffins stacked high with chorizo, bacon & more.

Street Food and Shopping at Broadway Market

Get into the Hackney vibe every Saturday at this famous hipster haunt & street foodie's heaven with a vintage clothes market and cool indie shops, cafes & restaurants.

Coffee and Cake at Mouse & De Lotz

Satisfy your sweet tooth & coffee addiction like the locals do in this rustic neighbourhood favourite with delightful daily cakes, sandwiches and healthy breakfast options.

Cosy Dining at Floyd's

For an intimate fuss-free dining experience with downright good food, this lovely little Dalston restaurant has friendly staff and an ever-changing menu of modern European dishes and unique cocktails.

Brunch the Italian way at Lardo Bebè

Little sister to the popular Lardo pizzeria on Richmond Rd., Lardo Bebè now offers brunch to the many contented Hackneyites at the weekend. The Eggs Pergatorio with 'Nduja Meatballs is a must-try.

Soak up the Vibe at London Fields

Grab a beer & a spot on the a grass with the cool crowds of Hackney in the summertime. As one of the only public parks in London with designated BBQ areas you can also fry up your fresh market finds.

Designer Duds at a Discount at Hackney Walk

Fashion fiends can flock to London's first ever luxury retail outlet set under 12 Victorian railway arches along Morning Lane with brands including Anya Hindmarch, Burberry & Aquascutum to name a few.

Wine & Dine at L'Entrepôt

Owned by the popular Borough Wines shop, this warehouse-style wine bar serves stunning plates to accompany the wines & even lets you bring in your own empty bottles to fill up from their barrels.

Take a stroll down Ridley Road Market

This is no fancy food or posh antiques market - it's loud, crowded & satisfyingly unpretentious and real, filled with culture, colourful fruit & veg and random bargain bits for anything & everything.

Take a dip in the Lido at London Fields

No need to wait for good weather in London to enjoy taking a swim in the outdoors, this unexpected Olympic size pool in London Fields is heated in the winter & pleasantly packed on hot summer days.

Catch an independent film at Rio Cinema

Sit on plush velvet seats under the sweeping curved ceiling of this historic 1930s Art Deco cinema which remains one of London's few genuine independent movie houses.

Drinks at Brewer's Bar

What was originally a butcher's shop has been lovingly transformed into a woody bar featuring the owner's handcrafted furniture & quirky salvaged additions for a cool spot for a bottle of craft beer.

The Lows

  • The nearest station is Dalston Kingsland or Hackney Downs which are on the London Overground line. However you are very easily connected to the Victoria line which will take you directly to Oxford Circus.

Have you ever booked a holiday home with great reviews and found yourself disappointed? Us too.

That is why the Plum Guide doesn’t operate a traditional review system. Instead we test every one of our homes obsessively against 150 criteria. Only 1 in 100 homes we test, is accepted. This is one of them.

This home has been accepted because it:

  • Received 15+ exceptional customer reviews
  • Passed all 150 criteria of our in-person hospitality test
  • Has 3 “super powers”: 3 unique things that make it a truly amazing stay
  • Received a unanimous "In" vote by the Plum Hospitality Judges
  • Received top marks from every Plum Guide guest, since being listed with us

"I loved absolutely everything about this home - the hosts were beyond lovely & welcoming and this amazing home that they re-designed themselves is a real treasure and reflection of who they are as a family & as creatives. There isn't a single detail that hasn't been thought about & carefully chosen yet the place is really cosy & comfortable to be in and completely clutter free. You don't see any of their personal belongings, everything's about the design with nothing left out to distract from it. They really love their home & I think anyone who walks through the door will instantly love it too."
